2017 SIGHPC/Intel Computational & Data Science Fellowship Applications Open

Are you - or your friend - studying data science or computing applications? If you're either a woman or a member of some other group that is underrepresented in computing, you'll want to know about this. It could be worth $15,000 per year to you. 

There's a new international program of graduate fellowships in computational and data science. Submissions opened March 15 for the ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational & Data Science Fellowships. The fellowships were created to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science, including women as well as students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have not traditionally participated in the computing field. The program will support students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world. 

Nominations close April 30. Read more ...
